We enjoined an awesome assortment of meats and cheeses as well as zuppa. It was a very a relaxing environment. Best of all the proprietors where very welcoming and helpful. You must stop in for some fabulous wine and premier food.

Went here for an aperitivo with my boyfriend and our German shepherd. The owner was super welcoming and let us go in with the dog although the place was small. He spent time talking to us and was super nice. Definitely recommend
